i am not sure if this is the right threat to ask but the restauration of thir new home-palace which cost a lot of money, who is paying for that?

Madame Royale 08-21-2009 08:30 AM

There is a thread. The Amalienborg thread.

And in answer to your question, the state will being paying the costs of the renovations as Amlienborg is owned by the state. It is not a private residence and so it's upkeep is the responsibility of the government. Though the official home of the Danish Royal Family, it does not belong to them, rather, they require it's use during their lifetime.

There is a jewelry fair going on at the Bella Centre in Copenhagen through the weekend. One of the pieces on display will be the tiara worn by CP Mary during the gala for Prince Henrik's 75th birthday earlier this summer.

The tiara is worth 1.5 million kroner, and is studded with 1340 diamonds. It is made from sterling silver and black gold.

Just because they are Frederick and Mary, and aren't paying the mortgage don't believe that's its free.

As I stated in another thread, everyone always thinks of the glamour of royal life and none of the realities. Yes, they wear nice clothes and BEAUTIFUL jewelery, travel the world, etc but they have no privacy, have to be happy and pleasant 24/7, are responsible to the people of Denmark (who can decide if they stay or go), etc.

Not to go totally off topic but royalty has it pluses and minuses.

That said, I think that Frederik and Mary are doing a great job. And I must make it my business to visit Denmark.

It's stunning. Mary looked wonderful with it on.
And monarchy does have it pluses and minus. Mary and Frederik do such a wonderful job. :smile:

Billed Bladet has an article that talks about how Frederik and Mary help each other with their speeches:
Billed-Bladet - Frederik og Mary hjælper hinanden med talerne
This is an extension of the recent interview that Crown Prince Frederik gave to BT. It also talks about how Mary helped him to quit smoking. Perhaps the most interesting part of this article is that it lists 10 little things about the prince such as:
He loves to drink Sprite.
He wears a diver's watch from Citizen.
He gets together each year around Christmas time for a reunion dinner with his former classmates.
He took off all of his clothes at a pre-wedding party for his friend Peter Heering.

Hahahaha, how funny to imagine a naked prince Frederick dancing and jumping in the crowed of pre-wedding guests....hilarious.

I remember the stripping for Peters wedding. :flowers:
Have they not done the ten little things before now? I remember it?

sgl 08-22-2009 12:59 PM

:previous: I think so, lumutqueen. They tend to recycle things from previous articles and incorporate them into new articles from time to time. Not sure why they do this, but the top ten list is an example of this.

That is a beautiful tiara. I hope she wears it again. When Mary, or Marie, want to borrow a piece how does that work? Who do they ask? Wonder if anyone is ever turned down?

I think they have; I seem to remember a comment somewhere in a Danish newspaper or magazine 'Lucky Mary ....' :rolleyes: :biggrin:

How many times do they have to post this article? Once should be enough unless they have an axe to grind. :rolleyes:

I may be wrong, but I think that the Danish royal ladies have never borrowed tiaras so I don't think there is any precedence of this. I so hoped the royal family had acquired this very beautiful tiara for their collection (still crossing my fingers that we may hear that some rich person, like Mrsk McKinney-Mller, have purchased it as a gift for the royal collection ;)).

Katrianna 08-23-2009 12:19 AM

I hope that the tiara stays with the Royal Family in particular Mary, it is beautiful. It was part of an exhibit of Danish Royal Tiaras that Mary "borrowed" from to wear at a gala. I think that it was designed as a honor to Mary and her Australian roots as it represents the wattle flower, a native to Australia. If I am incorrect I hope someone with provide the correct info.:flowers:

Here is one of Mary, courtesy of PPE-agency, wearing it at the gala for prince Henrik's 70th birthday - [DNF] Fotoarchief Denieuwsfoto

If you click 'Sdan laver man en tiara' under the smaller picture of the tiara further down, you'll see a series of 9 pictures of how this 'midnight tiara' was created.

Thanks UserDane. I really like the tiara and brooch. It is quite different to the usual styles that we see. :flowers:
